Benefits of switching gas and electricity suppliers

British Gas raises gas and electricity tariff prices

British Gas has announced today that it will be increasing prices of its gas and electricity supplies. The price hikes come in to effect on the 18th August 2011.

The increases are significant - 18% for gas, and 16% for electricity. This means you might end up paying several hundred pounds a year more on your energy bills!

Now is the time to switch your energy supply to a fixed rate deal!

With the price of your gas and electricity supply set to rise within a few weeks, now is the time to switch your energy tariff to a fixed rate deal, to take advantage of the current competitive prices.

Scottish Power has already announced increases in its gas and electricity prices, and with British Gas now doing the same it looks increasingly likely that all the other big energy companies will follow suit.

You have just a few weeks from now to get yourself on to a fixed rate gas, electricity or dual fuel tariff, so don't delay - do a fuel bill comparison now and get yourself switched over. The process is very quick and totally automated once you've set things in motion with Switchomatic.

Delay now - pay more for your gas and electricity later

If you don't switch to a fixed rate tariff now, you will miss out, and be forced to accept the price increases that will be part of your existing agreement with your energy supplier.
